    Yeah I know it's not most loved topic but was wondering from other students if you knew relevant sites to simply processes, teach tricks or just strengthen your skill in this area.

    I tend to find fewer and fewer websites as the subject gets more advanced.

    When I teach Calculus (High School only!) I just do a search for the specific topic. That seemed to work better. I had totally different sites for different topics.

    I do like books as resources and found my collection of Calculus books quite helpful. I picked most of them up in used book stores.

    I tried adding two plus two once, but my other brain cell had trouble multiplying itself.

    The i pad has an app that will actually solve problems for you and walk you through the steps on how it got the answer. As soon as I saw it I was livid. That would have been a God-send for AP Calc last year.

    This is definitely not calculus-centric, but it is interesting and gives some fascinating results.

    There is a search engine called Wolfram-alpha. They call it a "computational search engine". It gives results related to numbers and math.

    Try searching for your birth date.

    Not sure if they have much for calculus but check out the khanacademy on youtube. It helped me loads in my linear algebra class. It's just hundreds of tutoring videos, all in order.
